Our family in ATC's

Riikka's ATC's are always catching my attention. Full of colour, detail and the story behind it.
This time was no different. Fabulous colours of blues, teals and greens, scenry with magical seaside view. Absolutely stunning, can you hear the sea ?

These ATCs got their theme and name almost when they were done. I was playing with the “Destination Unknown” collection from 7 Dots Studio and made a series of ATCs with that. As the final phase I added the sticker “You, Me & The Sea” cut in three of the cards and then realised that the cards could refer to our family.

My husband is the lighthouse, guiding us through the storm and the calm. I myself am the seahorse, a little odd looking thing. Our younger one is the sea – stormy at one point, calm at one. And our older daughter is the compass, steadily pointing to her way. 

I used tags as the basis for the ATCs and then layered some paper and canvas layers on top. The cards got some shimmer from Glimmer Mist as well as Glass Glitter and Glass Beads. The final touches of color are done with watercolor pencils.
